Why Do You Need A Home Inspection?
For most people, purchasing a home is the most important investment they will ever make. There are many risks involved but a professional home inspection can greatly reduce these risks. The inspection will provide the information necessary so that the customer can make a well informed decision based on the issues of the home that need attention along with it’s positive qualities as well. Any defects will be included in a summary along with estimates of what it will cost to correct them. This allows the buyer to enter into negotiations with the seller and be able to arrive at an educated decision concerning the home purchase.
The following are included in a Home Inspection:
- Structural Condition and Basement
- Electrical, Plumbing, Water Heater, Heating and Cooling
- Kitchen and Appliances
- General Interior, Including Ceilings, Walls, Windows, Insulation and Ventilation
- General Exterior, Including Roof, Gutter, Chimney, Drainage and Grading
All home inspection reports are computer generated using the latest home inspection software and digital pictures of the inspection. The reports are uploaded to a website and are easily accessed for the buyer as well as the realtor.
